Oscar for the first all-CO2 Carrefour Market

04/04/2012

Leading actors: Bonnet Névé and CEF Nord. At last, the age of transcritical CO2 arrives in France with the first supermarket of Beaurrain Les Arras, inaugurated 14th November 2011. An eco-friendly store where the cold chain has played a part of vital importance, starring leading actors Bonnet Névé and installation company CEF Nord. Leading light of the installation was the Eptagreen compressor pack powered by transcritical CO2 at positive and negative temperatures, custom-designed for Carrefour.  Reduced carbon footprint, efficiency and a better consumer experience for clients, thanks to visual merchandising carefully planned studied down to the last detail by Bonnet Névé.

Eco-smart solutions for energy saving, too - the units chosen have transparent doors and covers, double-glazed for energy savings of over 50%. The real Oscar goes to the excellent collaboration with CEF Nord in carrying out this pilot project – without doubt, a model for the future.

New frozen food covers for shopping within everyone’s reach

04/04/2012

Costan and Bonnet Névé launch on the market, respectively, Tortuga 2 and Crocodile 2, Cosmo4ECO, Galaxie4ECO and Agora4ECO, frozen food covers of modern design, transparent for increasing ease of access to products. Innovative solutions that guarantee excellent visual impact and easy access to the products displayed, keeping energy consumption to a minimum. The increased size – no less than 1250mm – of the sliding modules reduces the number of vertical profiles, enhancing product visibility inside the tray.

The new look cover, in just one simple action, enables greater opening, both vertically and horizontally. Tortuga 2 and Cosmos4ECO have a push-lid system, so two-thirds can be open on both sides simultaneously, while a self-closing mechanism returns modules into place. What’s more, the handle can be pushed to slide the central glass panel to 100% opening, perfect for easy stocking. Crocodile 2, Agora4ECO and the end units are also extremely handy, with access to products on display for 75% of visible area.
